Your wedding arbor is often the most important part of your ceremony. It serves as both the backdrop for your nuptials and a focal point in many wedding party photos. Wedding arbors are traditionally decorated with tulle and elegant floral arrangements. Many couples are trying new ways to embellish their arbors. These are our favorite wedding arbor ideas!
WEDDING ARBOR – PAPER CRANES ARE AVAILABLE
A couple recently decorated their wedding with paper cranes, a symbol of luck. The cranes were suspended from Stonebridge Manor’s brick gazebo, making it a stunning backdrop for the vow exchange.
A MACRAME WEDDING CEREMONY BACKDROP
Because of its timeless appeal and growing popularity, we featured macrame recently in our wedding decor trends book. Macrame backdrops are a great choice for many wedding styles, even bohemian.
OPTING FOR A VINTAGE DOOR
Vintage doors are a unique alternative for traditional wedding arbors. Vintage doors can add to the rustic look of a wedding and also symbolise new possibilities. For a rustic, ranch-chic wedding, a French door painted white is a great backdrop.
A GEOMETRIC WEDDING ABOR
A geometric wedding arbor is a great option if you like mid-century modern design. An art-deco-themed wedding can benefit from a metallic arch with a geometric shape. To soften the morning arbor, add flowers and eucalyptus. This will allow you to showcase your stunning floral arrangements throughout the ceremony.
An arbor for weddings doesn’t necessarily have to be covered with flowers or fabric. They can also come in different shapes and sizes. This round wedding arbor is made of Galway Downs’ greenery and native vegetation. You can take your natural arbor to the next step by adding plants that are symbolic or good for your health. Eucalyptus, for example, is known to have a number of health benefits and can clear out negative energy.
It’s great that wedding traditions don’t need to be traditional. Couples can modify and update existing rituals to suit their own personalities. Every day new traditions and customs emerge, offering endless possibilities for your nuptials. We have compiled a list of our favorite wedding trends and traditions.
NON-TRADITIONAL WEDDING CEREMONY CONTEST SETUPS
Traditional wedding ceremonies have a central point, usually an arch or stage, where vows are exchanged. Your guests will usually sit in rows facing the officiant. A new trend in wedding ceremonies puts a fun twist on this traditional setup. Couples are choosing unique seating arrangements such as winding paths instead of an aisle or circular rows completely surrounding the ceremony setting. These new arrangements allow guests to have a different experience of the wedding, often making it more intimate.

SKIP THE WEDDING REGISTRY
Although we believe it is customary to gift a gift to newlyweds, many couples choose to forgo the traditional wedding registry. As couples move to funds for their honeymoon, home, or charity donations, physical gifts are rapidly disappearing. Some honeymoon funds allow guests to buy experiences as gifts, such as wine tasting in Paris and snorkeling in the Caribbean. If you are looking to give back, we love the idea that you can gift a goat, tree or fresh water to families in need. Many home-goods shops allow newlyweds to collect generous gift cards from their guests. They can then choose one larger item.
